**Description**:

Biochemical reaction networks are well known to be useful in modeling complex systems in biology and chemistry, such as gene regulatory networks and signaling cascades. This mini-symposium will showcase recent advancements in the field of reaction networks with a special focus on the connection between the underlying structure or topology of a reaction network and the possible dynamical behaviors that can emerge from it, including various notions of stability and robustness. The talks will feature applications of reaction networks to microbial interactions, insulin signaling, and synthetic gene circuits. We aim to foster a deeper understanding of the complex interplay between network structure and dynamics, and inspire new avenues of research in the field of mathematical biology.
